If you watched the game between USA and Germany I probably don't need to tell you that a comparison of Rieslings is likely to give you more excitement. Our wine match was a draw with both Rieslings scoring in three categories each. The St. Urbans-Hof is everything you want in a well executed Mosel Riesling with great balance between fruit and flinty notes. Whereas the Dunham Cellars makes a great case why Washington State should be on the radar of all Riesling fans. Equally matched wines, in there own way.
